It’s been ages since I stopped making resolutions or stopped writing them down anyway. But because of my new-found love for making lists, I’m going to make a list of all the things I want to start doing or do differently. Plus it really helps to have a list handy rather than trying to remember everything you decided to do. Most of my resolutions have a starting date of 2nd Jan 2014, for obvious reasons. January 1 is always spent dealing with hangover, gluttony, oversleeping and such other things, the opposites of which always make it to your resolutions list.
So here’s my list in a random order.
- Get at least 20 minutes of exercise everyday.
- Lose 3 kilos to reach ideal, healthy weight. Make husband gain at least 10 kilos for him to reach a healthy if not ideal body weight.
- Read at least 2 books a month.
- Blog more, a lot more. And make a conscious effort to focus on crisper, objective and clearer writing. Although since this is my personal blog,
occasionalfrequent rants are allowed. The bottom line is: WRITE woman WRITE!
- Become a mistress of bread making. Which means experiment a lot more and document every single recipe till I stumble upon a foolproof one.
- Take the weekend home bakery project seriously and start selling at least 2 loaves every weekend.
- Do whatever it takes to hold back from reacting immediately to any situation.
- Tone down the impulsiveness, short-temper and tendency to mull over things beyond personal control.
- Try to be cool and composed. Not the phony, serious, know-it-all bitch like, Just genuinely cool and relaxed.
- Try to behave more maturely and not confide in every single person and share minute details on ALL my thoughts and feelings.
- Learn to be happy irrespective of job stress, traffic, annoying people, gross men on the streets, irritating autowallas…you get the drift.
- Drink vegetable juice everyday (I love the one with tomatoes, carrot, beetroot, celery, lime juice, kala namak and pepper) without being too lazy to make it.
- Enroll for salsa, jive or zumba lessons.
- Start practising Spanish regularly before forgetting it altogether. Read Pedro Páramo in Spanish to begin with (because currently this is the only Spanish novel I have).
- Stop having coffee just because bored at work.
More points to be added by 31st Dec as and when I am inspired by something.
